Leather vs Cloth Seats for Kia Vehicles

When you start embarking on the shopping process of a new vehicle, you are bombarded by so many options. First, you choose the brand and model, then you decide on the color and whether you should go with a manual or automatic transmission. And then interior options are thrown at you, like entertainment, added speakers, and other accessories. Oh by the way, do you want leather or cloth seats? Hold it! Time out! Let’s make these decisions one at a time! Why don’t we start by considering the pros and cons of leather and cloth seats for your new Kia, since they will be where you sit when you drive – and your comfort should be a top priority.

Leather continues to be a favorite choice for many drivers because of its classy look and comfortable feel. Not only that, leather seats are easier to clean. This makes them a great option for drivers who have kids or travel with pets. However, depending on weather conditions and storage, drivers might experience extreme temperatures with leather surfaces. Luckily, many of the seats inside current Kia models are available with additional heating and venting. Another concern that drivers have is possibly scratching the leather with buttons/decorative hardware from their clothing or personal items.

Cloth seats are typically made of nylon or polyester and usually make an appearance in the lower trims of vehicle models. This makes them great for drivers who prefer to stay in a lower price range for their new vehicle. Many drivers love cloth seats because they are not sticky, slippery, scalding, or freezing in temperature extremes. The biggest concern that drivers face with cloth seats is the difficulty of cleaning (and may require deep shampooing for big messes) with the possibility of stains.
